Halloween is not just another day for kids’ treat, candies and costume parties. It is a playful kick-off to fall where we enjoy being crazy and welcome chilling vibes into our homes. So, why just decorate the front porch, leaving the rest of the areas untouched? Celebrate the spookiest day of the year by adding fun and scary to the living room too.

There are a variety of things you can do to fill your living room with Halloween spirit. We have summed up a few inspiring ideas for your help, take a look.

Induce Vibrant Colors

Colors can bring life to any space, and when it comes to Halloween, the bloody red is our all-time favorite shade to cast the spell all over. No, we are not suggesting you to paint your walls red, instead, decorate your living room with red candles, flowers, garlands, and lights scattering red ambiance throughout the place.

Apart from traditional pumpkins, you can also use tomatoes or apples as part of the décor. Place tomatoes in a bowl and draw scary faces on tomatoes to intensify the effect. You can also go with green or fall-colored decorations.

Add a Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkins can be placed all around the living room on Halloween, signaling a festive accent. It is not necessary to use real pumpkins – felt and fabric ones can do the job for you. Else, you can stick to the real ones and paint them, decorate them with glitter or add some inspiring/scary words to them. Adding pumpkins to decorate mantels in the living room is a good idea also.

If you’re missing scary jack-o’-lanterns around you, you can carve some from pumpkins and place them around the furniture, if you may.

Skull, Spiders, and Other Halloween Props 

Artificial skulls and skeletons are fine Halloween props to make living room intimidating and frightful. It is not necessary to use standard white skulls. You can make use of paint and glitter to add a quirky touch to the skeleton decoration.  The coffee table, storage cabinets, and shelves in the living room are ideal areas to showcase skulls and other props.

Skeletons can be set up in different themes, you can have them sitting on a chair or holding a picture frame. Puppy skeletons can also be used to add a fun element to the decorations. Likewise, spiders, web, ravens, bats and other Halloween props can be used accordingly. Hanging them in the living room will symbolize the presence of evil spirits.

Spooky Wall Décor

Walls of a living room are perfect to be decorated with creepy Halloween decorations. Use Halloween signs, banners, photo frames, and wall decals. The living room is usually considered the ideal spot in a home to deck with family photos. For Halloween, try to replace family photo frames with spooky photos of a haunted house or Halloween artwork.

Use command strips to hang picture frames without making holes in the wall. There should be an interconnection between picture frames. Arrange them in a precise grid rather than in a square or rectangle. You can also set up a gallery wall.
